    So what should I do to mine which hasn't been molested yet?
    Thoughts before I clean it or take it in for service?

    I purchased a 2016 TRD Sport and one of the first things I noticed on the test drive was how scratched up the cluster lens was. I ordered a new one from TRDShop.com for $23 plus $10 shipping. After receiving the lens, I took it to Clear Bra Indy to have them apply clear bra over the lens. For whatever reason, they did not want to put clear bra on it but for $20, they said they could put a coating of Ceramic Pro on it. Ceramic Pro is basically like liquid glass. After allowing the Ceramic coating to cure for three days, I wiped the lens with a micro fiber towel and it didn’t scratch. I proceeded to install it and it looks great!

    Here is the link to the new $23 cluster from TRDShop.com

    As with any surface dont rub it with anything dry.. Dry dust is what scratches it..

    I made a big mistake with my 09. I used a cleaner from chemical guys that was supposed to be for all dash surfaces. It made the lenses cloudy. Big mistake! On my new truck I now slightly dampen a microfiber towel with water and go over it gentley. I'll keep an eye out since many say the microfiber scratches it.

    I hope Toyota updates their material on the model refresh, so later on, I can purchase one. I'm seeing light scratches already.
